Suffering from psoriasis from past 6 yrs

Good evening, Sir.I am 28 yr old man & suffering from Psoriasis from past 6 yrs! I have been on all types of corticosteroids including Methotextrate & Zempred too! Over these years & have had interim reliefs as well. However, i have got the outbursts of the psoriatic skin n lesions all over on my body again. Actually, I masturbate almost every other day and at times twice a day too! After all,as they say, when temptation knocks, imagination usually answers! Somehow, i feel that this increase of scaling & erythroderma on my body is an exacerbation of masturbation! PLEASE HELP.i wanna know the real facts about this as I am absolutely puzzled & confused too! :-( Should I completely refrain from masturbation? :-( As i understand, masturbation relieves stress & is a healthy practice. So what could be the real reason behind this severity of my skin? Please help me.Kind Regards,Aman.

Hi there Aman. Welcome to Healthcaremagic. There is no connection whatsoever betwwen outbreaks of psoriasis and masturbation. Anyone who tell you otherwise is not scientificallt trained. Masturbation is a harmness and universal practise. I wish you well.

helloo Aman,
Welcome to Health Care Magic.
Psoriasis may be either due to bacterial or viral infection,too much sunlight or too little sunlight exposure,too much alcholic drinks,dry skin,stress and some drugs like anti malarial drugs.Masturbation has no special role in psoriasis.
Its better ti visit a dermatologist and have A SKIN BIOPSY done.he will provide you with certain lotions and onitments.Phototherapy mai also be given according to your skin type.
keep your skin clean and moist.Avoid scrubbing too hard it can irritate your skin.
